The greatest lessons usually begin with a failure. Stepdadding began from a

moment of anguish. I was in my office filling out divorce paperwork and trying to hold myself together. In the eight years I’d been married, my wife and I had seen three different marriage counselors. Any progress we made didn’t last long. The topic of divorce had come up more times than I could count. We seemed to be constantly on the edge of a breakup. The turmoil had peaked and I was ready to give up. But I loved my step kids. Leaving her meant losing them, so I’d fought to make it work.I was emotionally wrung out as I tried to focus on the divorce form. But that day my feelings for my family were stronger than my frustration. My stubbornness was stronger than my feeling of being unappreciated. I needed to find a way to make it work. I didn’t know where to begin but I knew I couldn’t give up. I pushed the papers through the shredder and began a mission to figure out what was broken. This focus became a multi-year project, which shed light on the difficult challenges Stepdads have to overcome.
Today Stacey James Wheeler is a leading expert in the study of stepdad challenges. He’s a popular guest on radio and was featured in the 2014 documentary Secrets Behind My Success. He is an active voice for family and child organizations.

USA Freedom Act: passed by relative landslide this week in GOP House, awaiting Senate action, reportedly ends direct state bulk collection of phone records revealed (again) by Snowden, forces telecoms into bulk collection role
Second Circuit Appeals court ruled this month that the Patriot Act did not, in fact, authorize the massive vacuuming up of people's communication data undertaken by U.S. spy agencies, despite ubiquitous, off-record claims to the contrary by "the intelligence community"
Court records can give the public some idea as to how the telecom oligopolies are responding to both of these events, indications being that a likely scenario is the largely unabated supply of communications information to the government
On May 31st of this year, Section 215 of the Patriot Act --used to support claims that nationwide, communications dragnet collection is authorized by law-- is expiring

IFBB Hall of Fame Professional Bodybuilder Flex Wheeler believes that his willingness to be vulnerable and openly share his struggles with the world is sometimes a weakness. However, that didn't hold him back from telling his compelling life story during this podcast.
Flex talks about some of the very best contest appearances, events and feelings that he experienced as a bodybuilder--and what he's doing these days as a driven businessman.
Wheeler explains why he feels that the camaraderie, connection, and competitiveness among the Gold's Gym Venice bodybuilders of the 90s made a much tighter group than the legendary closeness among Arnold Schwarzenegger and the "Pumping Iron" crew back in the 70s. He also reveals who was the real leader of the 90s bodybuilding stars back then. His answer will surprise you.
The bodybuilding legend discusses the challenges he had growing up dealing with the childhood trauma of sexual abuse and low self esteem. He also talks about the suicidal thoughts that's he's battled most of his life and how they have only subsided a little over a decade ago.

Domestic security is getting pretty complicated, what with miliarized police operations, cameras documenting events that were previously unaccessible, "non-lethal" weapons that aren't really, and a really extensive internal security system. Marcy Wheeler and digby discuss these issues. Marcy summarizes the current understanding of who and how American citizens are being surveilled. Digby has been on the taser front from the beginning.
Crime rates are way down. Incarceration rates are an embarrassment, pointlessly ruining the lives of millions of Americans. Police departments are more diverse, especially in urban centers. A consensus against the drug war seems to be growing--but the Feds and the local asset seizure programs don't want to acknowledge that consensus.
